Serratia marcescens

Hi, I'm S. marcescens.
I'm a Gram negative bacteria in the Enterobacteriaceae family.
I'm part of the Klebsiella tribe.
My cousin S. liquefaciens and I are very much like the Enterobacters.
We hang out with them in hospitals and we also like to cause nosocomial infections.
Just like the Enterobacters, many antibiotics won't work on us.
